Caller ID Spoofing

Definition - What does Caller ID Spoofing mean?

Caller ID spoofing is a malicious technique where a caller masquerades as someone else by falsifying the number that appears on the recipient's caller ID. Similar to e-mail spoofing by making a email message appear that it comes from one email address, when in reality it has been spoofed and has come from an entirely different one, caller ID spoofing can make a call appear to come from any phone number the caller chooses.

Techopedia explains Caller ID Spoofing

Caller ID Spoofing has been around for years to people with the right software and the right digital connection to their telephone company. Voip has now opened ID Spoofing up to non-sophisticated users given the large number of services and providers who can assist in the spoofing.
